108. the travel bug.

Ever since I was a baby, I've always had a great love for travel. I would scour maps, look at old photo albums, and plan vacations on Expedia til late at night. Even still, every day, I dream up a road trip or a spontaneous flight to Europe or another visit to see Mickey Mouse in Florida. Unfortunately, my job gets really busy in the fall, so I likely will not get to travel very far until after NYE. :( Since I've been bit by the travel bug, it's obvious that my last few thrifting trips have resulted in a lot of travel-related purchases. There are a bunch in my shop currently. Check out a few below. Click on the photo to bring you to the Etsy listing. (Also, remember the "Christmas in July Sale" is on from now until July 25th! 25% off all vintage items!)

106. the maine event.

I spent Fourth of July weekend in Portland and Falmouth, Maine. Here's proof: Lu is my nickname. I'm outside a bar called "Asylum." It had to be done. Mornings consisted of delicious breakfast sandwiches, heavily iced coffees, and newspapers with headlines about country moose that escaped to the city. Friday night was the Portland Art Walk. A salon/spa place called Akari did a hair show. Long story short--it was amazing. This purse from my shop made a few appearances. It sold the day after I came home! This guy was having a great time at the BBQ! My friend and I started a tradition last year--berry surprise. It's pretty much an angel food cake, covered in Cool Whip and a sort of patriotic assortment of fruits. Oh, and red crystal sprinkles. People go nuts over it. God bless 'Merca. Loungin' by the pool. My outfit just screams "FOURTH OF JULY," doesn't it? And of course, at night the sparklers come out to play

105. i'm back!

I'm home from Maine. What a lovely way to spend Independence Day weekend. I've gone up there for the last five years or so, and it gets better every time. I'll have a picture post up soon! I just have too much to get done first! Since I've been home, I've been wicked busy packing up eBay and Etsy orders. My Christmas in July Sale is going well. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already; every item in the shop is 25% off! I also have plenty of new vintage to shoot, and my goal is to shoot it all and list at least one new item before bed time tonight. Can she do it? Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. More soon..
